The Everett Housing Authority (EHA) in a joint application with the Chelsea Housing Authority (CHA) was recently awarded $70,000 in funding to run the state-aided Self Sufficiency Program (SSP) for one (1) year. The grant has an opportunity to extend for up to five (5) years.
This innovative program will enroll a minimum of 38 participants selected from the combined state-aided public housing and Mass Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) managed by both agencies. It provides funds to hire a coach who will offer support for employment, education and asset building.
EHA and CHA will build partnerships with local service providers to offer employment, financial literacy and education services to support SSP participants in meeting their desired goals.
The Everett Housing Authority and Chelsea Housing Authority look forward to this partnership which will assist participants by providing the tools needed to achieve self-sufficiency.
